Popeseye

Steak + chips + salad + red wine = simple formula that works. If you like the look of this sum then you can do a whole lot worse than the Popeseye in Kensington.  Just writing this blog is making my mouth water and I’ve just eaten lunch.

The dining room is simply set out, and in the corner of the room there’s a minute kitchen where the steak is griddled.

No bread, no first courses and no vegetables beyond chips and salads.  Simple, great cuts of meat which will give any steak house in town a run-for-its-money.   Popeseye is in fact the Scottish name for rump steak.  No surprise then the beef is sourced from the Highlands and is 100% grass fed.

And you can taste the quality.  The steaks are not just good, they are incredible.  Seared from the griddle, falling off the plate.  There are three cuts on the menu – rump, sirloin and fillet – in sizes ranging from 6oz to 30oz.  You don’t come to the Popeseye if you don’t want steak and you don’t order anything more than the 6oz if you’re not in it for the long haul.  The largest steak falls just short of 2lbs and that is a lot of meat.  Expect to pay £15.95 for the 6oz fillet and £55.95 for the 30oz.  Rump comes in at £10.95 for the 6oz and £35.00 for the 30oz.  Sirloin is again priced at £13.45 and £39.50 respectively.  All are served with chips.  Well-dressed salads are £3.95.

Steak is delivered with a tray of sauces – four types of mustard, mayonnaise, and ketchup, Béarnaise but to be honest don’t spoil it.

Pace yourself mind, the puddings are homemade and I dare you to try and leave without trying the mouth-watering melting middle brownies – even if you are ready to give birth to a food baby.

The wine list is well priced and features wine from pretty much most of the wine producing countries.

One other thing you should know, they don’t accept credit cards, it’s cash only so visit the cashpoint before you go – there’s not a hole-in-the-wall anywhere near.

They’ve another branch in Putney but I can’t vouch for that.
